Colorado Rapids vs FC Dallas Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Colorado Rapids were able to end a three-game winless run with a 2-1 home win over Montreal Impact. Stefan Aigner scored just before the break to give Colorado a crucial lead, but a second-half goal from Matteo Mancosu levelled the scores. Alan Gordon scored late in the game to give the home team a victory in a game which saw early red cards from both teams. FC Dallas were involved in a goalless draw with Orlando City, as the team continues to remain outside the top six. Dallas had the better of the early chances while Orlando had excellent half chances towards the end. Yet, both teams were unable to find that decisive goal. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas have had the better record over Colorado Rapids in recent meetings, as they have won three in the last six. Incidentally, all three victories have been at the Toyota Stadium, as Dallas have picked up just one win in the last six league visits to the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The last three matches between the two clubs at this ground has finished as a draw. This seems to be the likely result with the two teams missing some key players due to international action.

I would go with a draw. The two teams have been defensively solid in recent weeks. Even though Colorado Rapids would be without Tim Howard, they are up against a Dallas team that do not score much. Dallas have kept three clean sheets in the last four league games. I would go with this game producing less than 2.5 goals.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids are finally away from the bottom of the table after the victory over Montreal Impact lifted the club above LA Galaxy with only three matches left in the season. Being away from the bottom is a significant boost for Colorado, who have been struggling for form and consistency throughout the campaign. A good end to the season is the priority for Rapids at the moment, as the club continue to search for a permanent manager to take over from interim boss Steve Cooke.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Colorado Rapids will be without Tim Howard did international duty. Jared Watts is suspended for the game, while Mike Azira (ankle) and Mekeil Williams (ankle) are the players unavailable due to injuries.

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas have been on a poor run of form for several months and the club have been consistently dropping down the table during this period. The team are now at a serious danger of missing out on the top six, as they failed to take advantage of competitors like Real Salt Lake dropping points during the weekend. Dallas are level with two other teams on 43 points, while even Houston Dynamo in the fifth place are just a whisker away. Yet, Dallas’ run of one win in the previous 12 MLS matches does not make for a good reading.

Maynor Figueroa and Kellyn Acosta are the players unavailable due to international duty.
